    I'm struggling with the camera getting the white balance correct. It seems to keep wanting to go 'cold'/blue. I either have to shoot in pro or bring the warmth back afterwards in editing. Anyone else?

    Same problem here. While setting WB manually seems to work, auto was fine up until just recently.

    Are you still facing the issue? I recently purchased the 6T (coming from OP3) and the white balance shifts on auto are just too extreme to get accustomed to.

    I posted 2 pics here showing what I'm facing. Any suggestions/workarounds to fix this? Even GCam shows the wall as blue when I put an object between the wall and phone.

    EDIT:

    This only happens in some color and lighting scenarios. All photos generally have a cooler cast as well, which is not preferred but bearable, unless it goes extreme. My OP3 was much better and didn't think there would be an issue with the 6T camera.
